Video- Erin Andrews On Her Start In Broadcasting

Before Erin Andrews became the sports broadcasting stalwart she is today, she cut her teeth as a rinkside reporter with the Tampa Bay Lighting. Christine Simpson sits down with Erin Andrews to discuss her big break during her time with the Bolts.

That was a cool segment, I didn’t realize she got started in hockey or with Tampa.  The footage of her broadcasting the Lightning games - looks so young!

Then again everyone is getting older…except for me, of course wink

That she got guidance to ask good questions from Torts is indeed a heckuva start given Torts historical feuds with local reporters wherever he went.  Of course, there are those amazing sound bites of his fight with Larry Brooks that I would never have guessed he helped Erin Andrews in her start with sports broadcasting.

Kudos to Erin and hopefully, she’ll make her way back to hockey once more.
